There's something magical about the Christmas season. People might say it is commercialised and advertising has made it all about expensive gifts, but I think it depends on the individual families and how they let it affect them.
I am a part of an International Artists Community and this year, I signed up for a card exchange programme. We are assigned groups and we make hand made cards for all in our groups. I received a BEAUTIFUL card in the post yesterday (coincidentally on my birthday) from Norway, from a complete stranger. It was so BEAUTIFUL.
I am not allowed to share it as yet, as many haven't yet received the cards, and it might spoil the surprise for the others in the group if the person has made similar cards.
I too have made cards for people in my group and have sent out a bunch, and will be sending the rest tomorrow.
I am looking forward to the cards I will receive!
Isn't this a lovely idea?
If you like it, you can make your own groups and exchange REAL cards with strangers. You would just need someone to take the lead and coordinate, and assign groups. This can easily be done with the help of Google docs, or you can join artists communities like Sktchy where such things are done.
New post tomorrow! :)
Till then-- Stay warm, stay happy!
